An Australian firefighter has died while working on a blaze near Victoria.

Forest Fire Management Victoria chief fire officer Chris Hardman says the firefighter was involved in an incident while working in the area around the town in East Gippsland.

Meanwhile, Communications Fiji Limited through its five radio stations - Legend FM, FM96, Navtarang, Radio Sargam and Viti FM and website, fijivillage.com has started the CFL Australia Bushfire Victims Appeal.

Thousands of Australian families have lost their homes, farms, businesses. Far worse, some people have lost loved ones.

All proceeds go towards the Australian Red Cross’ effort to assist those affected by the bushfires. -̲-̲-̲-̲-̲-̲-̲-̲-̲-̲ 𝘽𝙖𝙣𝙠 𝘿𝙚𝙩𝙖𝙞𝙡𝙨 -̲-̲-̲-̲-̲-̲-̲-̲-̲-̲ Bank Account Name: 𝗖𝗼𝗺𝗺𝘂𝗻𝗶𝗰𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀 𝗙𝗶𝗷𝗶 𝗟𝘁𝗱 - 𝗔𝗽𝗽𝗲𝗮𝗹 𝗔𝗰𝗰𝗼𝘂𝗻𝘁 Bank Account #: 𝟵𝟴𝟬𝟬𝟵𝟯𝟱𝟳𝟵𝟰 Bank Name: 𝗪𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗽𝗮𝗰 𝗕𝗮𝗻𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗖𝗼𝗿𝗽𝗼𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 Bank Branch: 𝟭 𝗧𝗵𝗼𝗺𝘀𝗼𝗻 𝗦𝘁𝗿𝗲𝗲𝘁, 𝗦𝘂𝘃𝗮, 𝗙𝗶𝗷𝗶 Bank Swift Code: 𝗪𝗣𝗔𝗖𝗙𝗝𝗙𝗫 BSB: 𝟬𝟯𝟵-𝟬𝟬𝟭
